|Light up the New Year with the LSO and Chaplain’s ‘City Lights’|

LIMA — Ring in the New Year with the Lima Symphony Orchestra performing Charlie Chaplin’s acclaimed silent film, “City Lights,” at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 31.
Join the LSO at the Crouse Performance Hall of the Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center to watch Chaplin’s comedic brilliance come alive on the big screen accompanied by the orchestra.
Charlie Chaplin (1889-1997) not only starred in, wrote and directed “City Lights” himself but also composed the musical score for the film. During a time when the art of silent film was rapidly becoming a part of the past, Chaplin stayed true to the belief that body language and expression spoke to people in a way that no words could. His belief proved true after the film’s great financial and artistic successes, eventually being considered one of Chaplin’s greatest pieces of cinematic art. Follow Chaplin in his quest of blind love paired with classic hijinks in the brilliant, lively comedy “City Lights” as we celebrate not only the New Year but also the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Little Tramp himself.
Tickets are $30. To order tickets, call the office at 419-222-5701 or visit limasymphonyorchestra.com.
